Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking, 8-hour certification course designed to teach participants to recognized the signs and symptoms of a mental health challenge or crisis, and give them the tools to appropriately respond. This presentation will introduce MHFA, describe a specific public safety module designed for law enforcement participants, and engage participants in the effort underway to extend this training statewide as a complement to Crisis Intervention Training for the law enforcement community.

Other confirmed Mid-Year speakers include CBI Director Mike Rankin, Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz and Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, and Christina Gunn.

The mid-year conference is just around the corner and the annual conference follows a few months later.  It is time for us to look back on the past year and determine if there are individuals or organizations deserving of recognition by our association for their work or accomplishments in making our communities safer.

CACP has several categories of recognition for individual or organizational excellence.  We need your assistance as leaders to review the award categories and to consider submitting an individual, employee, or organization for consideration. You can submit one or more nominations for review.

The awards, guidelines, and submittal instructions can be found here. Awards need to be submitted no later than April 15, 2017

Daniel Brennan is the Awards Committee Chair and he will be accepting nominations by email at dbrennan@ci.wheatridge.co.us

A committee of association members will review the awards and select the recipients. We need CACP members to assist Daniel in reviewing the awards and making selections. It would be great if there is one volunteer from each of the regions.
